Abstract : This paper describes a large scale application of lightguide transmission to a multi-office toll message trunking network. Eight (8) city exchanges and six (6) rural dial offices are being interconnected with more than 130 km of lightguide cable containing up to 20 optical fibers. The system uses double window fiber manufactured by a Vapour Axial Deposition (VAD) technique and protected with a double coating of silicone and nylon. (Author)
